We’re thrilled to announce a complete re-design of the American Cinematheque website. See The New Site Now >
YOUNG ADULT
2011, Paramount, 94 min, USA, Dir: Jason Reitman

JUNO director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody reteam for this biting comedy about Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron), who writes novels for young adults without fitting into either demographic. When she learns that old high school boyfriend Buddy (Patrick Wilson) and his wife (Elizabeth Reaser) just had a child, Mavis takes it as a cue to return to her Minnesota hometown and try to win the man back. Patton Oswalt is wonderful as the former classmate who tries to talk some sense into her.


PROMETHEUS
2012, 20th Century Fox, 124 min, USA, Dir: Ridley Scott

A team of space explorers, brilliantly portrayed by Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba, discover horrors as they embark on a journey to a distant moon containing a puzzling structure that may offer clues to the mysteries of human origin.


SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
2012, Universal, 116 min, USA, Dir: Rupert Sanders

In this visionary, Gothic reimagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, vain queen Ravenna (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) sends an intrepid huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) into the foreboding woods to find and kill Snow White (Kristen Stewart), a princess who is prophesied as "the fairest of them all." But when the Huntsman and tough warrior Snow White come face to face, allegiances change. With costumes by three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. Produced by Joe Roth (ALICE IN WONDERLAND) and Sam Mercer (THE SIXTH SENSE) and directed by Rupert Sanders ("Halo 3").
